Homecoming 2019 is September 21

Watch the parade as it makes its way down Main Street. Reminisce with friends. Cheer on the Golden Flashes at Dix Stadium. Make new Kent State memories to treasure as much as the old.

Plans are underway for this year’s Homecoming on September 21, and you won’t want to
miss it! Bring your family and friends home for a day of discovery and excitement as the Kent Campus bursts with Golden Flash pride.

Start the day early with a complimentary breakfast at the Rock on Front Campus, the best spot to watch the parade. Afterward, enjoy the Welcome Home Party with giveaways, food and activities before heading over to Dix Stadium for an exclusive pregame party, the Flash Nation tailgate. Keep the fun going and cheer on the Kent State Golden Flashes as they take on the Bowling Green Falcons in a MAC home-opener.

Many other Homecoming activities are planned, including campus tours on Lolly the Trolley and Kiss on the K, an eight-year tradition that brings alumni, students and faculty couples together to share a kiss on the “K” at Risman Plaza.

We hope to see you on the Kent Campus September 21!
